iPhone to Support Exchange ActiveSync?

Mary Jo Foley claims a scoop:

Here’s what I’m hearing: Apple will announce this week — possibly as soon as June 27 — that it has licensed the Exchange ActiveSync licensing protocol. Via the licensing arrangement, Apple iPhone users will be able to connect to Exchange Server and make use of its wireless messaging and synchronization capabilities.

That means push email from Exchange to iPhone. I’ll believe it when I see the announcement, but my gut feeling is that she’s right. I can’t wait to see what excuses the “no iPhones on my network” IT guys come up with after this.
